The untold story of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen will unfold in Saving Mr. Banks this December 20, 2013. Walt Disney’s daughters’ favorite book was P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins.” They begged their dad to make it into a movie. It wouldn’t be easy. It took 20 years before Mrs. Travers would even consider it and when she did, it wasn’t without being very involved – she didn’t want Mary Poppins to be turned into something she wasn’t’.
